Malan Breton’s Fall 2013 Fashion Show Recognizes the Iconic Style of Marilyn Monroe

Aviva Drescher and Malan Breton Photographed by Arun NevaderWith a special appearance by Aviva Drescher of Real Housewives of New York, designer Malan Breton’s show was one of the most tweeted during Fashion Week in New York; he really outdid himself with his latest collection.  The line was dedicated to Marilyn Monroe, and while watching it, I really felt as if I was witnessing an “old Hollywood” made-new tribute. The dresses were demure and sultry, just the way Marilyn Monroe wore them whenever she made a “dressy” formal appearance, or appeared on the red carpet.  And if you’re a big classic movie fan, you will recognize the cool 1950s spectacles worn in the day, and a part of Marilyn Monroe’s wardrobe in movies like How to Marry a Millionaire . . . there’s nothing like a sexy woman in a couture gown, all gussied up, wearing a pair of Brooklyn Spectacles!  This look was especially effective on the male models who wore suits.

For the men,  tailored blazers, skinny ties and lapels; the trousers were taken right out of 1958.  Kudos to the styling team for doing such a great job recreating the look.  The clothes were very well sewn.  The women wore red lips and demure eyes with their hair in an “Oscar” up-do.  The pieces that made the biggest impression were the mermaid gown, and navy silk pleated gown with cathedral train . . .  and thank you, Malan Breton, for providing us the male eye candy on the runway . . . I hated seeing this show end!

If you’re looking for red carpet attire, classy with an old Hollywood slant; or if you’re looking for a high-end, stylish ensemble for him and her to wear out to an expensive restaurant, or a very special night on the town, you will find it in Malan Breton’s Fall 2013 collection.
